I wish I'd known The Razor's Edge was on FXM today (it repeats tonight but at post-midnight 12:30 a.m.).  Somehow I'd never seen it before and I missed the beginning today.  I also realize I've never read the book.  I'm going to remedy that soon.

TCM apparently won't be showing it anytime soon since it doesn't come up in the "reminders" feature.

What a worthwhile film about a worthwhile concept!

Re: Gene Tierney paper dolls

I loved paper dolls when I was a little girl.  I think Gene Tierney is one of the most beautiful actress to come out of Hollywood.

I recorded the Ghost and Mrs. Muir and occasionally watch it. My mother had a large box of paper dolls from her younger years and she passed them on to me. Sadly I loved them so much that I killed them. Lol.

Re: Gene Tierney paper dolls

I have always thought she was exquisitely beautiful, and “Laura” is one of my ten favorite movies of all time.  I named one of my girls “Laura” after the movie and its beautiful theme music.  My mom  was always told she looked like Gene Tierney.

 

my gosh, that brings me back.

These are fantastic! I used to love Betsy McCall paper dolls from McCall's Magazine. Paper dolls were sort of the precursors to Colorforms, which I also loved. They were brightly-colored vinyl removable outfits you could paste on to characters.

Gene Tierney's face was made for the big screen - I almost can't concentrate on her dialogue because her face is so flawless.

Thank you for sharing these!

I have a photo but don’t know how to post to this iPad.  Yes, my mother had those beautiful slanted green eyes and that Celtic high cheek boned face.  I’ll see if one of my daughters can post her photo for me.

My mom Christmas 1956.  I posted this from my computer.  She was 38 at the time.  She only had a decade more to live.
